Great quote by Terry Francona, manager of the Red Sox:
On Tuesday, when the Red Sox and Yankees finished the day tied, Damon was asked about the season-ending three-game series with the Yankees and said, "We'd be kidding ourselves if this weekend wasn't going to be the culmination of the season. It's the master plan, you know. God's way: Yankees-Red Sox."
Sox manager Terry Francona's response to that yesterday: "I wouldn't have thought that was God's master plan. I thought it was Fox's. My master plan would have had this weekend mean nothing and have us up.
"I have no doubt that would have been the Yankees' plan, too."
